National Cream-Filled Donut Day

National Cream-Filled Donut Day is dedicated to fragrant cream-filled buns. Donuts are as much a part of US culture as peanut butter, and are celebrated every year on September 14th.


It is believed the prototype of modern donuts was the Danish ‘butter pie’, the recipe of which was brought to the United States by Danish immigrants who lived in the territory of modern New York.

In 1803, a recipe book appeared that described donuts. They quickly spread throughout America and are considered a national dish, despite their European origin.

The peak of their popularity came after the First World War. To support the army, the United States sent a volunteer mission to France. The purpose of their work was to provide social assistance to military personnel. Two female cooks came up with the idea of ​​baking free donuts for the soldiers. The soldiers liked these products so much that after the end of the war, they rapidly spread throughout the States. Since the end of the 20th century, National Cream-Filled Donut Day has been celebrated to enjoy this wonderful confection.
